The proposed citizens’ meeting, which is going to be the first one ever held at Mtarfa if this proposal is
accepted, is intended to cover the following thematic areas:
     1. People’s well being in Europe: Employment, social cohesion and sustainable development

     2. Sporting Activities promoting active citizenship and voluntary work

     3. Women participation in political life

     4. The impact of EU policies in societies

     5. Intercultural Dialogue

     6. Integration of intercultural dialogue: methodological aspects

It is envisaged that that these thematic areas will be addressed on different days through the organisation of
public debate meetings, football games, group activities, communal activities and integration meetings between
the 2 nationalities involved.
It is the intention of Mtarfa Local Council to utilise the assets and facilities situated within the locality in order
to ensure that the meeting is a success, both for the Mtarfa and Arvidsjaur Local Councils and for the people
participating in the meeting.
In order to achieve the aims of the seven thematic areas, various activities will be organised. It is the intention
of the Mtarfa Local Council to address each issue through a dedicated activity aimed at addressing the theme in
question.
One of the problems facing both towns is the relative isolation from the main economic activity of the country.
Mtarfa is a former British Military forces town and is actively trying to regenerate itself through the
introduction of economic activities in the area. As the town is rich in historical buildings and in military
installations that can be adapted to modern shooting sports, it is the stated policy of the Mtarfa Local Council
to rehabilitate these assets in order to utilise them to foster economic growth. This attitude of self sufficiency
and pragmatism is going to be manifested in the program that the Local Council is organising for this citizen’s
meeting.
The Mtarfa Local Council is committed to showing the beauty of Malta to its guests from Arvidsjaur and
during the 10 day meeting, it will be taking the Swedish delegation on tours designed to show the attractions of
Malta and its sister island of Gozo.
The format of the meeting will be in the form of daily cultural activities and tours in the morning with social
activities and public meetings held in the evenings. This timetable is designed to allow the Mtarfa residents to
participate in the public activities with the least possible disruption to their daily working routine. This aspect
is considered to be important by the Mtarfa Local Council as it should encourage people to participate in this
meeting without disrupting their income activities.
The participation of young people is heavily encouraged through the organisation of football games, martial
arts sessions and a Sports Festival. It is envisage that both contingents would have a heavy representation of
young people who would eventually have fond memories of the occasion and further promote cultural ties
between Malta and Sweden.
It is the stated policy of the Mtarfa Local Council to actively encourage participation of woman in politics and
in business. The fact that human resources are limited in Mtarfa means that half of the local resources cannot
be left unutilised simply because the participants are female.
Hailing from a very small community, the Mtarfa Local Council is determined to ensure that this meeting is
capable of including as many members of the community as possible. The fact that the meeting is dependent
upon the generosity of the Mtarfa volunteers who would be dedicating their time effort and energy for the
common good is reflective upon the generosity of spirit present in Mtarfa.
It is the stated intention of the Mtarfa Local Council that this meeting will provide members of the Mtarfa local
community who would never have the economic means to travel to Sweden to be exposed to the Swedish
culture and character.

Tools (maximum ½ page) / methods (maximum ½ page)
Explain HOW you intend to achieve your aims. Describe the methods and tools to be used to encourage debate,
reflection, and learning (e.g. discussion groups, site visits, games, presentations), and how you want to give
visibility to your event.

Being the first event of its kind ever held at Mtarfa, this Citizens’ Meeting 2009 is to be a landmark event for
the Mtarfa community. As a seminal event, it is the intention of the Mtarfa Local Council to ensure that this
meeting is a veritable success.
In order to ensure success, the Mtarfa Local Council is asking for volunteers in various areas, namely;
     1. Catering,

     2. Hosting of Swedish participants

     3. Organising and Participating in sports activities

     4. Organising Tour Guidance

     5. Organising Thematic Conference

     6. Acting as Guest speakers in events

     7. Organising Transport

     8. Organising Final Day Sports Festival and other attractions.

 It is the intention of the Mtarfa Local Council to ensure as wide a participation of the Mtarfa Local
Community as much as possible.
The daily activities program is designed to first showcase Maltese culture and history to the Swedish
participants and later on, as from the second full day in Malta, to promote as much interaction between the two
communities as possible.
In order to encourage debate and social interaction, the Mtarfa Local Council decided to make use of its
Gymnasium facilities to encourage both communities to engage in something unusual to the uninitiated – an
introductory lesson in Martial Arts. It is the intention of the Council to use this event to break the ice and
encourage as much as possible participation of Maltese and Swedish young people.
The presentations, workshops and conference all have the intention of being discussion enablers between the
two communities. The principal idea behind these activities is to encourage active participation of women in
business and in politics, tackling the issue of relative isolation and maximising the use of local assets to
encourage the local business community. An additional benefit is that this is probably the first time that many
Mtarfa Local Residents would be exposed to the Swedish Nation and as such the Mtarfa Local Council is
determined that a positive impression is made on both communities.
It is believed that one manner in which the Mtarfa Local Council can encourage the active participation of both
Maltese and Swedish contingents is to organise community dinners hosted by various Council Members. This
allows Mtarfa Community volunteers to participate in hosting the Swedish contingent while allowing the
Swedish people to sample Maltese traditions and hospitality.
The fact that the Mtarfa Local Council is organising a Conference is also a first in the Local Community and is
also being given a lot of attention and thought. It is expected that various government institutions will be
sending speakers to address the issues being raised by the conference.
The final day sports festival is also intended to allow the young people of both communities to interact with
each other on a sporting level. It is hoped that all these activities involving a large number of Mtarfa residents
will enable the Mtarfa and Arvidsjaur communities to better understand each other and hopefully initiate
contacts that would be beneficial to both communities in the future.
It is the avowed intention to give as much publicity as possible to the meeting and press will be constantly kept
informed of the proceedings at the meeting.
A number of events will be staged that the press would be interested in reporting: the Conference and the
Sports Festival. These two events would be guaranteed reporting in the national press as these events are
always reported. It is for this reason that the Mtarfa Local Council is proposing to organise these events as
publicity is practically guaranteed.
